Learn more about the pediatric clinic coming to the ECC and how the T-Mobile Hometown Grant will impact this project.

On Wednesday, September 28, 2022, T-Mobile presented a grant for $44,000 to the Excelsior Springs School District, Swope Health Services, and MARC Headstart to help establish a pediatric clinic that will be located at the Early Childhood Center (500 North Jesse James Road, Excelsior Springs 64024). The clinic will initially offer pediatric care, dental exams, and optometry services to students and families of the Early Childhood Center with plans to expand services to all students and families in the Excelsior Springs School District. The grant ceremony was well attended by school and city leaders as well as executives from Swope Health and MARC Headstart.

About T-Mobile Hometown Grants:

According to a press release issued by T-Mobile, the T-Mobile Hometown Grants, launched in April 2021, is a $25 million, five-year initiative to support the people and organizations who help small towns across America thrive and grow by providing funding to kickstart important new community development projects. Since the program’s start, T-Mobile has given more than $5.5 million dollars to kickstart 125 community development projects across 37 states, including Excelsior Springs. Hometown Grants are provided every quarter to up to 25 towns. Every small town with a population of fewer than 50,000 people with a vision for how to make their community even stronger than it is today are eligible and encouraged to apply.

Hometown Grants are part of T-Mobile’s massive 5-year commitment announced in April 2021 to bring 5G to rural America, open hundreds of new stores and support economic development in small towns by providing $25 million in funding.

In addition, the “Un-carrier” unleashed T-Mobile Home Internet, a new wireless home broadband service available to more than 40 million households – a third of which are in rural America. In May 2022, T-Mobile unveiled Internet Freedom, a new Un-carrier move to address pain points in the broadband industry and make it easier for broadband customers to break up with Big Internet, lock in their price with massive savings, and feel appreciated.

It’s all part of T-Mobile’s goal to ensure that all Americans — from big cities to small towns and rural communities across the U.S. — have access to all the latest products, services, and technology.
